Do you know any studies about comparison between diaper-babies and diaper-free-babies and colic and bed wetting? Thanks a lot for help.

I don't know of any and I don't imagine there are any. EC isn't well enough known, most of the studies I've seen about EC are case studies about what other cultures do. It would be interesting to see if EC helps lessen colic or if it has any effect on the temperament of babies.


I do want to comment, though, that my baby had bad colic and we didn't try EC until he was 7 months old, and he night potty trained himself as soon as we introduced the idea of the potty. It's not 100% perfect, but most of that is adult error. That's only anecdotal, but neither colic nor being in diapers has led to bedwetting problems for us (so far- knock on wood!). I imagine, during colic, there might be more difficulties with bedwetting in diaper-free babies than in diaper-free babies without colic, though.
